“I have had many customers this year request satin to be used on the trim instead of semi- gloss or high gloss. I like the look of the satin finish especially against earth tones. Just wondering if others have had the same customer request more frequently this year.” View the entire conversation.
We typically like tweaking the paint sheens a bit when painting trim and doors, some more than others. In the Glidden Professional Diamond 350 line, we mix 50/50, semi-matte to semi-gloss (equal parts) to come up with a sheen in between. The semi matte is too close to flat and the semi gloss is too shiny for some applications. Other products are mixed 2 parts of one and 1 part of another to achieve unique sheen levels.
